Description of the research topic:

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a dynamic interface between the circulating blood and the brain parenchyma. The BBB is formed by endothelial cells that interact with pericytes and astroglial endfeet surrounding brain capillaries. BBB dysfunction is often observed in different pathological conditions, the common feature of which is inflammation. Based on our previous results morphological characteristics of the BBB under inflammatory conditions will be analyzed in an animal model, and using an in vitro BBB model.
